A pencil drawing of one of the most beautiful reptiles on earth : An Eyelash Pit Viper .

Reference Picture : en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bot…

I just made a Facebook page : www.facebook.com/ArtByParul9
Please do give it a like .. I really appreciate the support :)


Original Size : 35cm x 20.5 cm
Time : about 170-180 hours
Tools : .3mm & .5mm mech pencils , B, 6B, black gel pen, erasers ( pointed , kneaded and regular), blending stumps and soft tissue papers .

Black gel pen has been used only for the pupil, the heat sensing pit and the wound-like distortions on the facial scales.

One of the most challenging drawings I've ever done till now , I hope people like it :)

The suggester said: A lot of people draw in ultra-realism these days, but it's still a rare to see something like THAT. Eyelash Pit Viper ( Pencil Work ) by ~enigmatic-freak ( Suggested by lapis-lazuri and Featured by Astralseed )

Not even kidding you, I had to make a double-take, even triple-take when viewing this image.  I just can't believe how...REAL it looks.  Even the reflection off the eye is just so realistic, it's absolutely insane that you've managed to create something as real as a photo like this with just a pencil.  Absolutely phenomenal!
